The radio program ‘The Molotov Cocktail Hour’ has been spinning the platter on the airways of KXLU since the late 80’s with hosts Cyrano & Senor Amor. In fact, the show itself started off in the 80’s with it original host Tallulah Breakwater.
The current hosts once described their ‘playlist’ as “A finger-poppin’, tail-waggin’ concoction of questionable tastes, nefarious jazz, exotica, mysterious electronics, sultry vocals, Latin rhythms….” If you’re still not hip it the list, you’ll have to go to KXLU 88.9 FM (or kxlu.com) on Tuesdays 10 p. m. to midnight (PST) to dig deeper.
One of their yearly traditions happens around Easter time when they put a few hours aside, from 3 to 4 hours, to pay tribute to the music of Exotica and to the man who popularized this musical sub-genre, Martin Denny, and his hit record that kicked all of this into the enchanted tiki atmosphere, Quite Village!
What you’ll find here is the 8th edition of this yearly tiki party that took place in 1997 (don’t know the exact date)…all five hours! Pretty much all the exotica you can stand without passing out from too many Mai Tai’s in the middle of Tiki Oasis. This show was recorded on cassette tapes, so expect some cut offs here and there.
This recording was made and is posted by a fan who is trying to shake off his old radio recording habit (and failing at it, I might add). Therefore, anybody associated with this show has nothing to do with this! As Sargent Shultz might say, “I Own Nutink..Nutink!”
